Yamaha partner with Getabout to offer structured ATV training
No Matter what brand you ride YASSI will improve your ATV and SSV skills and safety
Yamaha offers safety to all Expanded and improved ATV and SSV training announced Lack of training has been highlighted as one of the main factors in ATV and SSV accidents. The aim of Yamaha’s ATV SSV Safety Institute (YASSI) is to instruct ATV and SSV users about the correct use of four-wheelers and so increase safety levels.
To assist with this aim, Yamaha Motor Australia is pleased to announce the appointment of Getabout Training Services as operator of YASSI.

Many ATV and SSV users who access training are from larger companies and corporate farms who are required to comply with safe work regulations. This group is easy to address. But many individual farmers who either don’t have the time or don’t see the value in ATV training are much harder to reach – which is one of the challenges faced by YASSI.
Getabout has been running ATV and SSV training courses for a number of years, has training facilities and contractors in each state and is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
